Previous games first?

Got it this weekend on a sale. But... I've never played any Max Payne before and it's kind of a classic franchise. Just wan't to know if it will be cooler if I play the previous games first.
I know that they're obviously ''inferior'' than MP3 (LOL) in many aspects as graphics, playability etc.

You don't need to play them first as some of the backstory will be explained in this game but they are great games and you can get them from Xbox originals.

By Xbox originals you mean that they're available On Demand and compatible with the 360. Right?

I would say they are completely unnecessary

I know, I know... But was willing to play the previous games just to get more familiar with the franchise. Like, you can start directly in Mass Effect 2, but I chose to play the first game first. Dunno why, but I don't feell confortable relying on the previous games summaries. It's hard to explain.

The first ones graphics are dated but to me, a lot better than the newer ones...including this one.

The previous games are honestly superb games, especially the first one.
